NESC President, Mr. Kern Dass, encouraged persons to take a picture of themselves and think about making the right choices that would ensure that they had good health and well-being in the future. Mr. Perry Bowen, Senior HSE Manager followed up by saying that the NESC’s focus on the “H” in HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) started in January with activities that focussed on physical health through group sporting activities and culminated with this health fair. The objective was to encourage persons to start putting their health needs first from a younger age.
